This new collaboration hopes to bring even more viewers to the streaming platform, thanks to Addison’s popularity and online following of more than 80million.

Addison made her acting debut in He’s All That in August, the gender-swap remake of She’s All That, a 1999 romcom in which a high school jock makes a bet with his friends that he can transform a geek into prom queen, but he ends up falling in love with her.

Addison plays a social media influencer who tries to transform one of the school’s outcasts (Tanner Buchanan) into her prom king.

Netflix estimated that more than 55m households would watch He’s All That within its first month of release. 

The film has reached number one on the site in 78 countries, including Brazil, France and Saudi Arabia.

Addison described the movie’s release on Instagram as ‘all her wildest dreams coming true’ and said having her first movie out is ‘so surreal.’ 

He’s All That streams now on Netflix.
